Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has announced plans to cut around 2,000 jobs over the next year.

The car manufacturer, which operates plants across the Midlands, said it had started a full review as it looks into how it can "transform most effectively into a more agile organisation".

It comes as the company announced plans to shift to all-electric production by 2030 earlier this week.

JLR says the restructure of the workforce is part of its future strategy.

This will be a journey of permanent adaptation, but as we start to become an agile organisation, it’s imperative that we make every possible efficiency right from the start, including finding the right baseline cost for our workforce.

But the company added that the job losses will not impact manufacturing staff.

We have started to brief our salaried employees about the detail of the organisation review. This does not impact our hourly paid, manufacturing colleagues. We anticipate a net reduction of around 2,000 people from our global salaried workforce in the next financial year.
